All of the “Expect Mores,” “On Your Sides,” and “Looking Out For You’s” can’t dislodge PBS from the top of the heap as the most-trusted media institution in the country.
A weighted online survey developed by PBS, but conducted by Marketing & Research Resources, Inc. (M&RR) found that for the 16th year in a row the noncommercial network of stations is the most trusted institution, not just media outlet, in the country.
Not only does PBS outpace local, network and cable outlets in the trust department.
It also comes in well ahead of the courts, the federal government and Congress.
Not to detract from PBS’ achievement, but used-car salesman and carny barkers probably also rate higher than Congress.
